  • The Problem with WiFi: It’s Slow, Short Range, and Hard to Set Up
    You want to watch HD movies without annoying delays. And play multiplayer games online without frustrating dropouts that paralyze the action. While WiFi is fine for email and routine browsing, it lacks the speed and consistency you need for a seamless AV experience. Plus, walls and floors often block a wireless signal and confine your fun to a limited space. Also, many people must rely on technical assistance to set up their wireless network.
  • The Problem with In-Wall Ethernet Wiring: It’s Messy and Expensive
    Because installing an Ethernet jack requires cutting into sheetrock, it’s messy and may be forbidden by many condo, co-op, and home associations. Given the time and labor involved, it’s also the most expensive approach.
  • The Solution: Monster PowerNet Products are High-Speed, Easy to Set Up, and Affordable
    One pair of Monster PowerNet units instantly creates a high speed Ethernet link to your modem or router using your home’s existing electrical wires. With speeds up to 200 Mbps between PowerNet units, you’ll download HD movies blazing fast from sites like Netflix and YouTube. And play online multiplayer games in real time with no delays or lags. Better still, PowerNet setup is a breeze: no new wires, no network configuring. As you plug other PowerNet units into various outlets in your home, you extend the reach of your network with the devices you connect to them. A high performance, wired network this reliable used to cost thousands of dollars and took hours if not days to setup. Now, Monster PowerNet units put a high-speed home entertainment network at your fingertips in minutes.
  • How the PowerNet 300 Makes Whole Home Entertainment Easy
    Simply plug the PowerNet 300 into an outlet and connect up to four Ethernet-capable devices like computers, modems and routers, game consoles, DVRs, and network-ready TVs. With your home theater on the PowerNet 300, your Internet-enabled components will be ready to share all the HD movies, music, and photos you download.
  • All Monster PowerNet Products Work Together Seamlessly
    Whether you mix and match among the Monster PowerNet 100, 200, and 300, they all work together flawlessly.… just plug them into different outlets and you can use your network-ready TV or game console to browse the media stored on your attached devices. Monster PowerNet makes it quick and easy to view HD movies and photos without waiting, play fast-moving, multiplayer games online free from glitches, and listen to room-filling music whether you have it stored on on your desktop PC, notebook computer, DVR, Blu-ray Disc™ player, or any other digital media source with an Ethernet port. When you mix and match PowerNet units, you bring high-speed Internet connectivity and whole-home networking into every room… in the most flexible and affordable way.
  • The PowerNet 300 Protects Your Components and Delivers Up to 48% More Speed than other Ethernet Powerline Adapters
    The PowerNet 300 protects your attached components against harmful over-voltages and spikes with advanced power protection built into its two onboard outlets. It also prevents surges from entering the Ethernet port of any attached network product like network-ready HDTVs and game consoles. Moreover, the PowerNet 300 features PC Clean Power Stage 1 filtering on AC line noise for speeds up to 48% faster than other Ethernet powerline adapters. With the PowerNet 300’s Dual Mode Plus™ circuitry, when over-voltages or extreme surges occur, it disconnects the load to keep your component safe and sounds an alarm to let you know.

    Comments about Monster Digital Life PowerNet 300 With Clean Power:

    I live with my fiancee and four other roomates, so imagine the stress on our wireless router.
    I mainly use this with our iMac and the connection is sure and through every time. I had a bit of trouble shooting to do as one of my roomies is currently using a PLC system (cisco). I found out that it will work in conjunction with other compatible PLC devices. Although, for best performance my two powernet 300/200 work seamlessly together.

    • Added noise on audio

    Best Uses

    • Home network

    Comments about Monster Digital Life PowerNet 300 With Clean Power:

    If using Nordost equipment this will induce noise on your system. Works exactly as advertised though and very easy to set up. Great for home network and gaming, not the best for a high end music streamer.

    Have Home Theatre streaming movies hooked up through this device and media server connected. Everything works without skipping a beat. I was hoping for faster throughput on my PC but it wasn't there. The best I was able to get was 10Mbps which isn't bad.

      Comments about Monster Digital Life PowerNet 300 With Clean Power:

      I started out with two units to make sure they worked. Took them out of the box and plugged them in per the instructions and they worked great. We live in a 3000 sq ft home built inthe 1970s and I needed one to get the furthest room that doesn't get wireless well so I added a third unit. Plugged it in and it works great. Solid connection with AppleTV, WD Live and internet connected LG TV. The only issue I have is that the power cable neeed to be longer.

        I bought two of these to connect the internet to a room on the opposite side of my house. I had been using Wi-Fi but the signal was weak and intermittent. Just plugged in the two units, connected the cables and told the computer where to find the connection. Now the remote location has fast, reliable internet access, and no new holes in the walls from running additional cables.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Monster Digital Life PowerNet 300 With Clean Power:

            I bought the PowerNet 300 to use with a flat screen TV (internet ready), a PS3, and a lap top computer. All are in my family room that is one story down with and separated by several walls to the wireless high speed router attached to my main computer. Speed was greatly improved over the wireless connection with the introduction of this device. I especially like how it is so neat and compact and also includes several power outlets that are both surge protected and filtered. The power cord snaps in so it does not fall out, but I agree - Monster could have done a better job with the instructions alerting end users to push hard enough to hear that snap. All and all though it merits 5 stars just because it does what it does so well.

              Comments about Monster Digital Life PowerNet 300 With Clean Power:

              I needed something to use where I could connect multiple gadgets; my PS3, my DirecTV DVR, my dedicated Sony Blu-Ray player - all ethernet enabled, but no nearby network ports. So I replaced one of my Powernet 200 modules with the Powernet 300, and it allows me to hook them all up to the same line. Sure, it's sharing the bandwidth, but I don't use them all at the same time. It works like a charm, and is as easy to user and set up as the 200 was. Thanks again Monster Power, another great product!
